What do you think about this?
We have e.g this directory structure
music -> classic,pop
recordings -> radio,audio_books
I would like to implement (i can work on it, it looks easy but i'm quite new in this project so may be that i don't see something crucial)
a feature which automatically loads configuration file when audio file from particular folder is played. E.G.
- i have a config file (with name autoload.config) in the recordings directory and another config (with same name) in the recordings/audiobooks directory,
- When user asks to play file from E.G. recordings/radio, a simple algorithm looks if there is a autoload.config in the current folder or in the parent
folders and if there is a file then it will be automatically loaded before playback starts (recordings/autoload.config in this case)
- when user asks to play (or file is in a playlist and is going to be played) a file from recordings/audio_books/firstbook folder, algorithm finds a file
recordings/audiobooks/autoload.config and loads this file before playback.
- when something from music/* is played then nothing happens (or may be that some general config file stored in the root folder of the player will be loaded)
What do you think about this? Can this be accepted in to the code? Is there some complication which i don't see why this cannot be implemented (a question
for developers)? For me it seems that it is enough to add a functionality to playback.c and of course to update config dialogs (it could be fine to have
a possibility to disable this function)
It could be great (okay for me
to have this functionality. I have many different recordings e.g. with different volumes and so. Some of them are well
played with compressor (radio games) other are okay without this functionality.
Thanks for all replyes
